Hierarchy Properties dialog

Use this dialog to set hierarchy properties. For example, to change the name or description of a hierarchy.

For more information, see:

"What are hierarchies?"


Use this field to change the name of the hierarchy. By default, the name is derived from the item on which the hierarchy is based.

Note: This field becomes read-only if the Auto generate name property is set to Yes.

Auto generate name

Use this field to change the value of the Auto generate property to Yes or No. When the Auto generate name property is set to Yes, Discoverer enables the names of some types of End User Layer (EUL) items to be dynamically generated, whenever a folder or item name (used in this type of hierarchy) is changed.

This field becomes read-only when the Auto generate name property is not applicable to this item class.

For more information about this property, see "About generating and updating EUL item names automatically".


Use this field to change the description of the hierarchy. The contents of this field are displayed on the description line of Discoverer Plus's Query Wizard.


Use this field to change the unique name that Discoverer uses to identify EUL and workbook objects. When matching objects common to different EULs, Discoverer uses identifiers to locate objects in different EULs that refer to the same business objects.

Warning: It is not advisable to change an identifier as it can affect the relationships between EUL objects.

Automatically save changes after each edit

Use this check box to save changes each time a field in this dialog is updated.
